One Dish No-Knead Bread

For years I've sworn that I am going to get over my fear/hate relationship with yeast, and every year, it still hangs on.    A few weeks back I made the Angel Biscuits and those went fairly well, and I thought, now's the time for bread.  Several other Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editors shared their reviews of this recipe, and that boosted my confidence even more.

Here's the thing, bread can't be rushed, you can't force it to rise.  I chose to make this on a day where I had nowhere to be and could give it as much time as it needed.  It wasn't the warmest of days, so I preheated the oven, propped open the door and then proofed it above it.  First rise went swimmingly.  I punched the dough down and moved it to the baking dish for the second rise, but I wasn't happy with the appearance.   I could tell it was going to make a bumpy rough loaf, which my guys can turn their noses up at.   I removed the dough and shaped it into a loose ball like this.   Just folded the edges over to pull the top smooth.   I definitely wouldn't classify it as "kneading".

2nd rise went great too (woo hoo!) and I popped it into the oven to bake. It definitely needed the foil cover, and I used a probe thermometer with the temp alert set.  After the loaf was baked, I brushed the top with melted butter, and then loosely covered it back up with the foil.

Most no-knead breads are dense and lumpy, and this one wasn't.   It had a great texture that was perfect for eating as is, and was also great toasted.    Next time I will definitely double the recipe and make them in 9x5 loaf pans.  This didn't last the day, all 3 of us are serious suckers for homemade bread.  Thanks so much to Heather C for this fantastic recipe and helping me get one step closer to conquering yeast!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Buttermilk Rhubarb Muffins #MuffinMonday

This is the first year I've been able to harvest the rhubarb from my garden. Today I got three nice sized, very red stalks so went searching for a recipe and came up with these Buttermilk Rhubarb Muffins from Taste of Home.  I upped the amount of nutmeg to 1/2 teaspoon and also added 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. I took about 1/4 cup of the flour called for in the recipe and tossed it with the rhubarb to keep it from sinking, a trick I learned from my Gram.  I  use a cookie scoop to distribute the batter evenly. I also topped the batter with raw sugar before baking, we love the sparkle and crunch it gives the muffins. Thank you so much to Stacy for hosting and to all of the other #MuffinMonday bakers for sharing their recipes, be sure to check them out using the links down below!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick
